Share to wear is devoted to caring for our planet and altering the culture of fashion.
Fashion is the third most polluting industry in the world, and the second largest consumer of water.
Textile production accounts for 20% of the worlds industrial water pollution and 1.2 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
The production of clothing consumes over 80 billion gallons of freshwater, uses 20 billion pounds of chemicals, and excessive amounts of energy.
4 million tons of that clothing ends up in land-fills where it takes centuries to degrade, all the while emitting harmful greenhouse gasses.
Renting dresses instead of buying new ones keeps them from ending up in a landfill. Join us in doing your part to reduce the fashion industry’s detrimental impact on the environment.
It all starts with a dress, and the desire to share.
We wear dresses that make us feel comfortable, confident and reflect who we are. Our goal is to pass this confidence on to all of our customers. In our shop women try on clothing they may not have felt comfortable trying before. We help them feel empowered to be themselves, celebrate who they are, and how they look in whatever they choose to wear.
We bring women together, sharing within our shop, across our campuses, and within our team of women entrepreneurs, one dress at a time.
Our customers spend less and wear more, and get a return on what they share.
Our renters get access to one big, wonderful closet, full of fashionable, fun looks that are on trend, for just a fraction of what they would cost to buy.
Our dress-owners free up space in their closets, without throwing anything away, and get the added bonus that every time their dress is rented they earn a profit — a big deal to a budgeting college student.
We offer increased access to high-end fashion by making it much more affordable, and make fashion a revenue-generating investment for our dress lenders.
